REVIEW - Make You Mine (Nine Circles #2) by Jackie Ashenden
Release Date: 5 May 2015
Alex St. James was left with a choice. Pick up the dice and find where they lead, or walk away. Choosing to see where the snake-eyes go, Alex plays in a poker game run by the devil who haunts his past. He will risk everything to find answers—that is, until his alluring, enigmatic bodyguard, Katya, becomes someone he cannot risk losing…
Katya is fiercely conflicted. Aching to break free from Alex to track down her former lover, Katya agrees to one last job—to protect her dangerously sexy boss as he gambles his future in exchange for clarity about his past. As the stakes are raised, Katya's loyalty shifts from the man she loved to the man she swore to protect. But in order to get what she wants, Katya will have to go all in…
My Opinion 5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
Another HOT instalment in this series from Jackie that has you turning page after page and marvelling at the workings of Jackie's mind.
The story continues from book one in where they are investigating what was going on with Alex's fathers casino and the link to Conrad South's casino in Monte Carlo. South being an old enemy of Alex.
Katya is Alex's bodyguard and also holds her own secrets and pain, pain that she too has buried deep. Both end up helping each other and healing their pain as Katya refuses to give up on Alex as he constantly tries to push her away. She is the only one that has ever refused to give up on him.
The emotions between the two characters feel real and leap off the page and you can't help but want the characters to hook up and stay together.
Katya shows great strength as events go on and she helps Alex overcome many fears and stand up to the events of his past, we also get to see a little of the other members of the Nine Circles.
I greatly anticipate the next book in the series with Zac and Eva.
